I always thought Paul Ryan was a supporter of the Tea Party and the principals we fight for. My mistake. It seems he's more of a "go along get along" type Pub.
Paul Ryan was a stronger conservative when he was Romney’s running mate. Was that a lie then too?
I think he's always been that way - Romney saw it. Ryan's wife comes from a political family (dems) so they're marinated in "how it's done" in order to have a long "distinguished" career.
Ryan worked for and models himself after Jack Kemp. Kemp was the happy warrior who mistakenly believed that supply side economics would trump all.
Ryan, like Kemp, fails to recognize there’s a crony capitalist class and a welfare class, neither of which believes in limited government and low taxes.
Ryan’s plan exchanges Obama’s silly and punitive hissy-fit cuts (closing parks, shutting down gov websites) for long-term entitlement reform and re-writing the tax code.
It’s exchanging a small can of potted meat with prime rib.
But, you say, it doesn’t get rid of Obamacare, the monster sitting at your front door.
No. Maybe a concession (medical device tax, delay till the website works), but no defunding. The monster sits there, growling.
The reality is that without enough Senators to overrule a Presidential veto, Obamacare cannot be defunded at the moment. You need to get rid of the monster, but you need a weapon with enough power to kill him, not just make him mad.
That happens next year, if all the whiners can see the big picture. Take permanent entitlement cuts and revision of the tax code today, take the Senate next fall.
Let that Obamacare website get up and working. Right now, it’s a joke. When it’s working and people see how it affects them, it will be a nightmare.
I may not like Boehner or Cantor or others in House leadership, but giving up seniority and majority would be suicidal stupidity.
Ryan is a pragmatist and a good guy. I will never agree with him, or any politician, on everything, but we must quit eating our own if we hope to rescue this country.
The 2014 elections are critical. Opponents of this administration must stop bickering and trying to destroy one another, or we are all doomed.
Just looked up his voting record, Ryan voted for the $700 billion bank bailout, the biggest Medicare expansion in U.S. history, a massive highway bill that included the Bridge to Nowhere and the Obama 987B stimulus bill!
